‘Grey’s Anatomy’ boss on Bailey’s year 20 reset, Teddy’s fate

Warning: This short article consists of spoilers for Grey’s Anatomy time 20, episode 1, “We’ve Only Just Begun.”

She has five rules.

Grey’s Anatomy ended its time 20 premiere with the news that Nick (Scott Speedman) is leaving the clinic, seemingly to be with Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) in Boston, which suggests somebody requirements to just take over the (struggling) intern method. And who better than the girl who taught Meredith Grey, Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh), Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl), George O’Malley (T.R. Knight), and Alex Karev (Justin Chambers)? That is suitable, Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is again!

“You happen to be not likely to obtain a even larger enthusiast of the show than myself,” new showrunner Meg Marinis tells EW. “And there are sure pieces of the present that I adore historically, and Bailey getting at the helm is one particular. She just had the minute of her occupation with successful that award and we felt like, exactly where does just one go as soon as you’ve arrived at the top? And I imagine thematically, the interns are owning this reset. They are likely to go back again to basics due to the fact of what transpired at the stop of very last year, and she just received an award for teaching persons. This is the thing that she’s always excelled at. The mentorship that arrives from Bailey is a big piece of the display.

As for what this all suggests for Speedman’s Nick, Marinis claims: “What is so awesome about our display is we have an open-doorway plan, so I imagine you happen to be just heading to have to tune in to see who pops up. But we enjoy their partnership. I uncover that they have awesome chemistry. I adore that he challenges her and I appreciate that she results in being a small undone by him, far too. So I just say stay tuned.”

The premiere also answered a big query posed by the season 19 finale: Has Richard (James Pickens Jr.) fallen off the wagon? Luckily, he has not, but he is thinking of this a reset for his sobriety journey.

“It is really a little something that even while we never converse about it every single episode, when a person struggles with that in their life, you assume about it every working day,” Marinis states. “The character could not discuss about it each individual working day, but it really is undoubtedly in his head for the very first component of this period as he goes about his workday and being aware of how to handle the pressures at do the job. I also think it’s going to have an affect on his interactions and how he interacts with folks. But from time to time when you might be resetting some thing like that, you have to gradual down everywhere and just type of seem at what is significant and how to transfer ahead. And there are problems in that.”

And then there is certainly the issue of Teddy’s (Kim Raver) fate after her collapse in the year 19 finale. The great news is that she’s produced it through operation. Now the question is what lies forward for her and Owen (Kevin McKidd). “When any member of a pair goes by means of some thing like that, it’s super hard. They have been by means of so considerably, and they’re surely likely to be impacted by that. Matters get tested, but I feel that I’m thrilled for y’all to see how it plays out. They’re just so wonderful alongside one another and they have been by way of so significantly the previous time.”
